I am posting a digital image I finished tonight. It is a work that opens a dialogue about identity, culture and memory.
The image reflects my interest in the work of Frida Kahlo. As a self-taught artist, I have learnt much about structure from her works. In 'Special Selection', I have included many layers of photographs of the model and of images from the lids of biscuit tins.
It was a treat for me to see some of Frida's paintings and drawings in the Pallant Gallery, Chichester, UK in 2011. Her works are incredibly powerful 'in the flesh'... mostly painted with tiny brushes.
Alongside her artworks, where those of her husband Diego Riviera. In this exhibition, the works of Frida shone!
Talk art soon! cx
